Changes to prescribing at this surgery 

We are promoting the use of over the counter medication for selfcare as an alternative to prescribing by your GP. This is because they are available to buy in pharmacies and supermarkets at a much lower cost. Please do not be offended if we ask you to buy these medicines. There are exemptions to these changes - for more information please visit  NHS East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group : eastleicestershireandrutlandccg.nhs.uk

The medications include:    Cough mixtures, Coldsore treatment, Colic drops, Paracetamol and Ibuprofen for simple short term conditions, Antifungal nail treatment, Antacids for indigestion, Antihistamines for hayfever, Medicated shampoo, Sunscreen, Mouthwash and mouth ulcer treatment,Creams, gels and rubs for muscular discomfort, Travel vaccinations, Herbal remedies

It costs the NHS approximately three times more to prescribe these medicines than it does to buy them over the counter.

This is your NHS - please use it wisely.

Are You A Carer?

Carers are people of all ages looking after relatives or friends who, because of disability, illness or old age cannot manage at home without help.  They may or may not live in the same household as the carer.  Please, do let us know if you are the main carer for a relative or friend. 

We are aware that the life of a carer is restricted by the need to take responsibility for the person they care for and we recognise that this can place a great deal of pressure on them and that they may need support.

The Carers’ Health and Wellbeing Service Leicestershire is a free, confidential service for carers throughout Leicestershire.  It is run by a local charity, Voluntary Action South Leicestershire, based at the Settling Rooms in Market Harborough.  An adviser will discuss your own unique caring situation with you and provide practical information and advice to assist you in accessing the various services available to carers in Leicestershire. 

If you are a parent/grandparent who knows that their child or children provide extra care for them due to physical or mental ill health this service is also available to you to consult. The adviser will discuss your situation with you and provide information on resources and support available to your young carer within the Market Harborough District. 

If you feel you could benefit from these services please download and return the attached leaflet. VASL Carers Leaflet Alternatively you may contact directly:  Carers’ Health and Wellbeing Service, VASL, 1st Floor, Torch House, Torch Way, Market Harborough' LE16 9HL .  Telephone: 01858 468543  Email: admin@vasl.org.uk  Visit: www.supportforcarers.org
